Governor John A. Johnson

Governor John A. Johnson, c.1909.

John Albert Johnson was Minnesota's first governor born in the state, its first governor to serve a full term in the current State Capitol, and its first governor to die in office, making him one of the state's most notable leaders. He also was the first Minnesota governor to bask, albeit fleetingly, in the national spotlight when he sought the 1908 Democratic presidential nomination but lost to William Jennings Bryan.

John Albert Johnson was born on July 28, 1861, in St. Peter. He was the eldest child of an impoverished Swedish family abandoned by an alcoholic father, and he left school at age thirteen to support his mother and siblings by clerking in a store. In 1887, local Democrats, impressed with the enterprising young clerk, asked him to join their party and edit the strongly Democratic St. Peter Herald. Johnson's success as a journalist attracted statewide attention and fostered his political aspirations.

Johnson married local schoolteacher Elinore (Nora) Preston on June 1, 1894. Around the same time, he began running for state office from his heavily Republican home county. After early losses, he finally was elected to the state senate in 1898, thanks to his growing bipartisan appeal.

Known as a courageous and charismatic leader, Johnson was elected the sixteenth governor of Minnesota in 1904. He was reelected in 1906 and 1908, serving as governor from January 4, 1905, to September 21, 1909.

Johnson's ability to work with legislators from both parties resulted in reform legislation such as reorganization of the state's insurance department to the benefit of policyholders, reduction of railroad passenger and freight rates, and removal of constitutional restraints on the legislature's power to tax.

Johnson began his third term as governor with reservations. His health was precarious, and he wanted to pursue a promising sideline career as a public speaker. When he died suddenly on September 21, 1909, at age forty-eight in Rochester following surgery, the state's citizens were grief-stricken. His lieutenant governor and successor, A.O. Eberhart, formed a John A. Johnson Memorial Commission in October 1909. The group commissioned and erected memorial statues of Johnson at the State Capitol and in his hometown of St. Peter.

But two recent scandals make this basic <a href=http://www.association-acacia.fr/>louboutin pas cher</a> unregulated industry has become the focus of these scandals highlight some ethical issues, and prompted the government to suppress.

In late July, the Thai news media reported that one pair of Australian money to make a couple of female surrogate gave birth to twins, but they are only one of the children to take home, leaving the children with Down syndrome. Surrogate mother's request for assistance to some extent sparked nationwide protests continued, the boys father's remarks further exacerbated discontent, these remarks were seen as extremely unforgiving.

The father David • Faneuil said he would prefer to stop the pregnancy was pregnant. He said, "I think any parent not want a handicapped son."

"This is a symbol of moral depravity," Pakistan Valley Georgia public health department heads leather Ode • Weng Romney said. "Money is a symbol of the supremacy of the people respected."

Police investigation and the forthcoming law led some foreign couples doubt whether they will get a baby through a surrogate home. Australia has asked the relevant government agencies in <a href=http://www.hotelgalaxy.it/>Piumini Moncler</a> Thailand before the junta banned commercial surrogacy law takes effect, allowing the "transitional arrangements."

Thailand's military government then vowed to require its rubber-stamp parliament to quickly pass laws, the regulations still allow surrogacy, but not paid. Surrogacy Surrogacy agency <a href=http://www.idrnet.fr/>nike air max pas cher</a> and provide services ads will be banned.

US CDC: Ebola is not terrible but not a large outbreak in the United States

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; People in Chicago August 10 - U.S. Centers for Disease Control on the 10th that the Ebola virus is raging in Africa though menacing, but "not terrible." This year's Ebola outbreak has killed nearly 1,000 people dead, World Health Organization will therefore be characterized as the West African Ebola epidemic international emergencies.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; according to data provided by the United States Centers [url=http://www.borgocastellania.it/]woolrich sito ufficiale[/url] for Disease terror, AIDS caused more than 100 people were killed each year in Africa. Pneumonia, malaria, diarrhea and even hundreds of thousands of Africans also claimed the life of a year. For Americans, heart disease and cancer is their number one killer, zero chance of ordinary people infected with Ebola.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; United States Centers for Disease Control, said people who really care about their health should first go to a flu shot in the fall, after all, there will be an annual average of 24,000 Americans die from influenza and its complications. Even so, in the face of "no cure, the mortality rate over 50%" of the Ebola virus, we do something about it?

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; [url=http://www.hoergutzu.it/]nike tn prezzo[/url] First, Ebola virus does not spread through the air, as long as healthy people not in contact with body fluids or transporting the patient or the patient remains the case in the absence of protective measures would not be infected.

As long as all close contacts of infected persons and strict isolation, the spread of the Ebola virus will soon be suppressed.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; United States Centers for Disease Control believes that Ebola is not a major outbreak in the United States. Although the mortality rate is much lower other infectious diseases, but [url=http://www.convittocutelli.it/]hogan scarpe[/url] because of the large [url=http://www.hoergutzu.it/]nike tn italia [/url] number of infections, so patients they cause a huge amount of hope. At the same time, countries put too few resources to control Ebola, also contributed to the cause of this disease panic. (Gao Yi Jun)
